    So tonight I made a decision to add 2 of my new birds who are 10-12 week old EE's to the coop while everyone else sleeps BUT it is their first night outside and the best part is both are boys. I am hoping this goes well. Should I be more worried about the fact their boys or that they are with 17 new birds
